5,834 The announced attendance
Props to the student section, which was acknowledge by Marvin Menzies after the game, addressing the fans and encouraging them to show up on Saturday against Boise State. The listed attendance was 5,834, but the student section was full on both sides.
"We had a great crowd" Menzies said. "I wanted to mention that. The students were there in full force. I’m so proud of all the Greeks on campus and the non-Greeks that show up at a late game on a Wednesday. It just shows you that the spirit is alive and well and there is a lot of pride in being an Aggie. Hopefully we can give them a great performance on Saturday."
30.9 — Idaho's field goal percentage, which was a season low for an Aggies opponent this season
24 — The combined field goal percentage of Idaho guards Mac Hopson, Steffan Johnson and Kashif Watson. Hopson was 4 of 14 to finish with 9 points. Watson was 4 of 15 and only scored four points in the second half. Johnson was 0 of 4, all from downtown.
"It was just being there on the catch," Jahmar Young said. "Coach was in our ear and didn't shut up the whole night, just making sure we were where we needed to be and that’s what we needed."
7 — The number of blocked shots from Hamidu Rahman, who also had eight points and 11 rebounds. The blocked shots were a career high for Rahman, who found yet another way to contribute.
"One of the technical aspects of being a good shot blocker is staying down and trying to block the shot after it’s been released," Menzies said. "He’s gotten a lot of fouls this year going for pump fakes. He only had eight points but he still shot 50 percent so we will take it."
16 — The glaring negative stat of the night for the Aggies. They had nine in the first half and seven in the second half.
"We didn't do a great job taking care of the ball," Menzies said. "I don’t mind the missed shots because we were being aggressive but it would have been nice to have done a better job taking care of the ball. 16 turnovers is a lot."
